What a great stinking load of horse manure.
The LINK to the story says "Saddam's Capture Justifies War for Some", while the actual title of this thread says "Saddams capture justifies
Iraq war for soldiers".
Misinformation. The article itself says it justifies it for SOME, not even MOST. Meaning, for the MAJORITY of US soldiers the capture of Saddam
DOESN'T justify the war.
medic: War makes people into killers. War makes soldiers do terrible, terrible things that they relive for the rest of their lives. Rape, murder,
violent aggression (see vietnam).
If you are saying that the ARREST of ONE MAN justifies the death of 10,000 civilians and the death of 500+ soldiers, then you're the singlemost
deluded person I've ever met. No respect for human life either, and apparently no logical bone in your body.
And I don't give a crap what you're doing in Iraq, and I am not gonna congratulate you or any other soldier who is there, US, British, Japanese,
You sign up for the Army, you know you're going to possibly pay for it with your life. So it's your job. I don't expect anyone to congratulate me
every day for doing my job correctly, same goes for you. Keep your head down.
"No one joins the army to go to war. (except for the dumb ones) But when we do have to go, then we go. We don't getto pick what happens. And
people will say " you joined, you knew what would happen". Thats BS. A majority of us joined to get college money, or because we had no idea what to
do next in life. I have to tell ya, I didn't join with the idea of tryin to be Rambo in my head. "
Well then you're not quite a rocket-scientist yourself, are you? Didn't you read the pamphlet? Didn't you listen to your recruiter when he/she
told you that YES this means that you may have to go to war. Illegal wars of aggression, no less. Wars that your President and his cronies decide
that you may DIE FOR.
" It way not have been justified. I don't care. WE ARE STILL HERE. whether people think it was justified or not, doesn't make any
Say, care to try that one again? You don't care if it was justified, and even if it was or not it doesn't make a difference to you?
I suppose that's the biggest difference between you and me.
If I was an American reservist, and I found myself in a foreign country as part of an Occupying Force, and I found out that the MAIN REASONS for the
war were not true, I may be pretty pissed.
I may think that my LIFE and the lives of my fellow soldiers were being unneccesarily SQUANDERED for a war that should not have happened in the first
place. Might make me a little bitter to think that even though we're apparently fighting for our country, if I die MY COUNTRYMEN are not allowed to
see any pictures or video of my coffin. Go Freedom!
Chew on that one and please reply in an adult fashion. Even if it means you have to ask for help.
